NSS' Amateur Radio Page

Welcome to my Ham Radio Web Pages

My original (single page) web page had become so terribly long that it must have taken dial-up visitors hours to connect and to load the entire page. For this I sincerely apologize... sometimes having access to a wideband Internet connection tends to make us forget that not everyone has that access, and as a result, we sometimes put a LOT more on our main pages than we should. I'm trying to correct that problem here, but it may take me a while to get things 'adjusted' so they work well. 

This site will be 'under construction' for a while. During this time, if you cannot find something you know (or feel) should be here, please drop me a note and I'll try to either fix the broken link, or to find it and ensure that it is added to the site.

The following pages are available below:

Modifications I've made to my BIG GREEN EGG (Grill/Smoker)

I've come to quite enjoy cooking (mostly grilling) on my Big Green Egg.
However, I've also come to find that there were a few things that made
my enjoyment of this device a bit less than 'blissful'. Click [here] to go
to my Big Green Egg Mods page.
